- Cliff. His name is Cliff.

Here's the better, original footage of the guy stuck on a cliff I filmed a couple of weeks ago. I was coming out of the Spanky's Ladder zone on Blackcomb with the groupe I'm coaching, when we saw a bit of commotion and, eventually, this poor guy perched halfway up a nasty cliff with no way up or down. I had with me the camp video camera, so I was able to get a few good close-ups of him hanging on for his life. As comical as it was that anyone would keep going and get themself into such a bad spot, we where also all very worried for him. Shortly after, 6-7 patrollers started showing up with lots of ropes, but we had to leave before we could see the actual rescue. I heard that after 1-2 hours they managed to get him out of there. He was seen later having a beer with his buddy at the GLC. He's alright!

Bloody hell. When it pans out it would appear that he was very lucky getting stuck on that small outcrop!Posted 1 month agoKlunkMember

Well, he might have climbed up, and thought using a snowboard would be a quicker way down; I’ll be damned if I can see how he ended up perched on that tiny little ridge on his board, though, there doesn’t seem to be anywhere near he could have found a decent slope to ride, to end up there.Posted 1 month ago
The very definition of precarious!
I agree and I can totally see why he was glued against the stone. I’d have wanted to bloody melt into the stone given the chance.Posted 1 month agoCaherSubscriber

He’s going to need a new set of Damarts.Posted 1 month agokayak23Subscriber

I’m glad you cleared that up. Wouldn’t want a cliffhanger on my mind all week.Posted 1 month agoSuperficialMember
He’s come down the slope without really knowing where he’s going, gone around the tree and side slipped on his toe edge as the terrain got steeper and steeper. Looks like he was VERY lucky to stop where he did but I can totally see how it happened. Also very lucky that people could see him to raise the alarm.
Spanky’s Ladder (where this is, in Whistler-Blackcomb) is an amazing bit of terrain that’s technically not out of bounds. With a small hike you can get some amazing powder lines and/or steep couloirs. Also easy to get into trouble.
Glad he’s ok.Posted 1 month agosenor jSubscriber
crikey .very lucky.Posted 1 month agoTwodogsSubscriber
I’d guess he was trying to get into that little gully on the left, having seen it on his previous hike out from that valley (the downside of going up Spanky’s Ladder). Harder to find from above than he thought!Posted 1 month agostumpy01Subscriber
Cliff. His name is Cliff
I’m not sure it is. He doesn’t have a seagull on his head…Posted 1 month agomrmonkfingerMember
How, just how, did he actually stop?
Did Magneto float him up there using his belt buckle?Posted 1 month ago

Am I the only person who thinks the guy taking the video and those with him are total a-holes to laugh at his situation, they expressed mild concern, but the general gist of their commentary was to be amused. He came out of it OK but they didn’t know what the outcome would be.Posted 1 month agoBigJohnSubscriber
Being pedantic, isn’t that a bluff rather than a cliff? I thought a cliff had to overlook the sea.Posted 1 month ago
